Rare Roman vase was discovered in central France

In central France, in the city of Autun (ancient Augustodunum), a completely preserved vase from the end of the Roman Empire was discovered during excavations in the ancient cemetery.

The glass vessel measures 12×16 cm and bears the inscription Vivas feliciter (“live happily”). The object is richly decorated and made in the style of reticulated glass; such items are rare and so far, only 10 such vessels from Roman times have survived.
